Topology is in a certain sense secondary if interpreted as a repercussion of internal status, that is as a dynamic and static consequence, especially, secondary to the other two types of surficial sciences: surficial osal anatomy and surficial muscular anatomy. The way the osal anatomy forms the muscular anatomy, both previous anatomies, form the third anatomy, the outer surficial anatomy of the body. Topology dynamics is complex and multilayered, as it involves the at least two internal dynamics mentioned here, as well as their interaction. The paper deals with the systematic problems of surface anatomy, first of all, in relation to a certain number of external surficial phenomena, focusing boldly on folds, metacarpal, substernal and rectusal shallow systems.
